Status of the flags

Chris sent the flag of Dartmouth - any note as to the date? Dartmouth and Halifax no longer exist as separate entities - they (plus Bedford and Halifax county) were rolled into one as the HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality) over a year ago. Last I heard (last fall) they were still arguing if they needed a flag or not.
Rob Raeside - 03 April 1999

The flag for Halifax was adopted on July 1, 1992 when the city received it's arms.

The Halifax Regional Municipality came into existence on April 1, 1996 as a result of the amalgamation of the cities of Halifax and Dartmouth, the Town of Bedford and Halifax County Municipality.
